Superior Metal Products, LLC, Birmingham, Alabama
Superior Metal Products, LLC has served the needs of the

custom fenestration product dealer. Purchasing and manufacturing
are centralized in Superior's 108,000 square foot facility in
Birmingham, Alabama. Material, in both lineal and finished form, are
from Birmingham direct to customers across the United States.
In response to ever-evolving market conditions, Superior has developed
product offerings from the original storm window, door, and screen
to also include single glazed and insulated residential replacement
patio covers, carports, insulated roofs and enclosures, screen
enclosures, and sunrooms.
As product demand increased and many of our fabricating dealer's
capabilities were taxed, Superior responded with the formation of Superior
Windows (a division), to supply fabricated windows and doors. By
reducing some of our dealer's fabrication burden, they have been able

fabricating insulated double-hung tilt replacement windows, picture
windows and horizontal sliding windows offered in both white and beige

replacing the original vinyl window product line that was
discontinued. Deceuninck Corporation, a Belgian conglomerate that
acquired Vinyl Building Products in the summer of 2004, continues to
supply vinyl extrusions to our window division.
In 1999 Superior developed and introduced its first insulated
sunroom/enclosure (Medallion Series) featuring a 2 Inch panelized wall

insulated panelized wall system called the “UltraView” Sunroom.
